There is a crisis happening in Europe as over four million Syrians are fleeing their war-torn country, seeking refuge and safety across the sea. While some countries are opening their doors to these refugee migrants, others are doing little to nothing.
It seems that every day there is a new report of refugee bodies washing up on shore, after boats capsize or are lost at sea. Those who make it face a struggle for resources, and a place to find a home.
Those who hope to make it to countries like Germany or Austria that currently welcome asylum-seekers still face the dangerous task of finding some means of transport.
Many of these refugees are women and children, who are simply looking for safety, hope, and a new start. In the bleakness of the situation, here are a few photos that show the touch and power of the human spirit.
